EXHIBIT I-E
PUBLIC NOTICE AND NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
Housing Resources of Western Colorado has submitted in conjunction with Mesa County, Garfield County, and Rio Blanco County a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) application to the State of Colorado, Department of Local Affairs. CDBG funds are intended to provide decent housing, suitable living environments and economic opportunities, principally for low and moderate-income persons through rehabilitation and preservation, economic/job development and public facilities improvements.
The application being considered would request $ 589,600 for the Single Family Owner Occupied Home Rehabilitation Program. It is estimated that approximately 100 % of the funds would benefit low and moderate-income persons. Permanent involuntary displacement of neighborhood persons or businesses is not anticipated. Should it later become necessary to consider such displacement, alternatives will be examined to minimize the displacement. If no feasible alternatives exist, required/reasonable benefits will be provided to those displaced to mitigate adverse effects and hardships. Any low and moderate income housing which is demolished or converted will be replaced. In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, individuals needing special accommodations (including auxiliary communicative aids and services) during these hearings should notify Scott Stewart, CFO of Mesa County at 544 Rood Ave, Grand Junction, CO 81501 a minimum of 3 days in advance so that appropriate aids can be made available.
A public hearing will be held at 9:00AM on February 27th, 2017 at 544 Rood Avenue, Old Courthouse Grand Junction, CO 81501 to obtain citizen views and to respond to proposals and questions related to: The proposed CDBG application for this project; and Community development and housing needs, including the needs or low and moderate income persons, as well as other needs in the community that might be addressed through the CDBG program; and The performance of the Mesa County in carrying out its community development responsibilities.
Potential historical effects.
A copy of the application(s) as submitted to the State will be available for public review at 544 Rood Avenue, Grand Junction, CO 81501
Oral and written comments will be considered in deciding whether to submit an application for the proposed project.
Written summary information will be available at 544 Rood Avenue, Grand Junction from March 1st, 2017 until March 8th, 2017 on any CDBG application(s) for Mesa County, Garfield County, and Rio Blanco County intended to submit to the State.
Information and records regarding the Mesa County’s proposed and past use of CDBG funds are available at 544 Rood Avenue, Grand Junction, CO 81501 during regular office hours.
NOTE 1: THIS NOTICE MUST BE PUBLISHED IN A NEWSPAPER OF GENERAL CIRCULATION IN THE AREA AT LEAST FIVE (5) DAYS PRIOR TO THE PUBLIC HEARING. It should also be posted in the city/town hall or county courthouse and in other places frequented by the public, ESPECIALLY LOW AND MODERATE INCOME PERSONS BENEFITING FROM OR AFFECTED BY PROPOSED CDBG ACTIVITIES.
NOTE 2: EACH MUNICIPALITY AND COUNTY PARTICIPATING DIRECTLY IN A MULTI-JURISDICTIONAL PROJECT IS REQUIRED TO CONDUCT A PRE-APPLICATION PUBLIC HEARING AND TO PROVIDE PUBLIC NOTICES. AS APPROPRIATE, THE NOTICES MAY BE COMBINED AND THE HEARINGS MAY BE HELD JOINTLY.
* For projects with more than one activity, provide estimated amount for each activity and estimated percentages by which each activity will benefit low and moderate income persons.
** For multi-jurisdictional applications, written summary information and a copy of the application must be available for public review in each participating jurisdiction, as required by HUD.
